Visualization is largely understood and used as an excellent communication tool by researchers. This narrow view often keeps scientists from fully using and developing their visualization skillset. This tutorial will provide a “from the ground up” understanding of visualization and its utility in error diagnostic and exploration of data for scientific insight. When used effectively visualization can provide a complementary and effective toolset for data analysis, which is one of the most challenging problems in computational domains. In this tutorial we plan to bridge these gaps by providing end users with fundamental visualization concepts, execution tools, customization and usage examples. The tutorial will be focussed on visualization techniques for mesh based data (such as rectilinear grids).

The tutorial will comprise of three closely related sessions as follows:

  • Visualization fundamentals: Lecture – Assay of standard techniques and their utility (45 min)
  • Hands on Visualization with VisIt software on your computer/laptop (80 mins).
  • Remote visualization with VisIt software on Comet cluster at SDSC. We will provide training accounts. (30 mins)
